If you love pasta, and who doesn’t, you’ll love this food holiday! Sept. 15 is National Linguine Day! Often spelled “linguini”, this type of pasta originated in Italy. Wider than spaghetti and flat like fettuccine, this pasta is long, narrow and flat and often served with seafood, cream-based or pesto sauces.
Whether you buy it in a box, in the refrigerated or frozen section at your local market or make it homemade, linguine is an affordable pasta that can be served many ways. While the origins of this delicious day are unknown, National Linguine Day provides the perfect opportunity to indulge in a little, or alotta, linguini!
Today is also National Crème De Menthe Day, National Double Cheeseburger Day, National Felt Hat Day and Make a Hat Day.
